For this edition of BXL TOUR, on Sunday, June 17, cyclists of all levels will race along an entirely new route. After having enjoyed a healthy and energizing breakfast in the Park of Brussels, offered to those who will arrive first by our sponsor Jordan’s, 5000 participants (Master and Cyclo) will depart at the Place des Palais, in front of the majestic Royal Palace.
The first start will take place at 10 am at the Place des Palais.
Staggered start waves will follow, with faster racers starting first. Participants will head towards Rue Belliard and take the Cinquantenaire tunnel to Montgomery. After riding down Avenue de Tervuren, racers will turn onto the Boulevard du Souverain. Participants will then take Avenue Franklin Roosevelt, crossing the Bois de la Cambre and passing through Ixelles, Etterbeek, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert and Schaerbeek via Général Jacques, Louis Schmidt, Saint Michel, Brand Whitlock, Auguste Reyers, Général Wahis and Lambermont boulevards, up to the Van Praet bridge. Racers will then head back up Avenue Van Praet until they arrive at the Boulevard du Centenaire, where they will begin the final sprint to the finish line – the Atomium in the background makes for excellent photos!
* The “MASTER” category is reserved for 200 experienced racers (minimum 18 years old) who hold an official license from a cycling, duathlon or triathlon federation.
* The “CYCLO” category is open to 4800 cyclists (age 12 and up).

More details will follow over the next few weeks.
